The filmmakers were given remarkable freedom to record the historic 1984 contract negotiations between the United Auto Workers and General Motors Corporation. Bob White, labour leader of the Canadian branch of the UAW, must also confront his American counterpart from Detroit and succeeds in arriving at a contract that is significantly Canadian. His members had already given him a mandate to fight for independence from the American union. This is an invaluable document for anyone interested in the complexities of United States-Canada relations. It's an extraordinary film about revolutionary events.

    This film is absolutely incredible! It is indeed rare that such access to negotiations, not to mention shop floor activities and arguments, is ever given and this film is a wonderful document of that time and place in labor history. The pacing of the film is so quick, I think even non-historians and non-labor people will find this just a fascinating story. The narration does a wonderful job of putting everything in context while letting the story stand on its own as much as it can. I never feel lost in this film, and I think Bob White and Phil Bennett are absolutely fascinating to watch.

    This film was used as teaching material on an industrial relations Masters programme I did. It's absolutely exceptional - probably the best film about trade unions I've ever seen.
